Election of 1852]
Boston Commonwealth. Extra., Boston, 1852. Broadsheet, 21-3/4" x 16". Recto printed in three columns; verso printed in five columns. Untrimmed, light edge wear, a few spots and old folds, with several light crimps and one or two small separations at fold intersection affecting three or four letters. Good+. "Boston Commonwealth. Extra." at head of title. The broadsheet, a dramatic illustration of the growing split in the Democratic Party, supports the "Free Democratic" Party, led by Senator John Hale of New Hampshire and George Julian of Indiana. A precursor of the Republican Party, the Free Democratic Party was created by Northern Democrats who broke with the national Democratic Party, which was dominated by southern pro-slavery men. The Free Democrats pledged, "NO MORE SLAVE STATES, NO SLAVE TERRITORY, NO NATIONALIZED SLAVERY, and NO NATIONAL LEGISLATION FOR THE EXTRADITION OF SLAVES." That bold promise is contrasted with the temporizing pro-slavery Platforms of the two major Parties-- the "Compromise Democratic Nominations" of Franklin Pierce; and the Whigs, headed by Winfield Scott. The verso is headed in bold type: "The Fugitive Slave Law! America's Bill of Abominations!!" Its text, with the signature in bold type of President Millard Fillmore, is printed in five columns at the top half of the verso. The lower half is an address, by "Alexander," "To the People of the United States!--- The Issue before the Nation!" Unlike the Whigs and Democrats, the "Free Democracy will favor the early policy of the country, to limit, localize and discourage slavery. the immediate repea … [Click Below for Full Description]

Trial of Wikoff, Vannoud, And Cavallari, For a Forced Marriage Between Miss Gamble and One of the Accused. Before the High Court of Genoa, February 9-10, 1852. London: William Shoberl, 1852. 64 pp. Lithograph portrait frontispiece of Wikoff. Octavo (8-1/2" x 5-1/2"). Stab-stitched pamphlet in printed wrappers. Moderate soiling, rubbing to extremities with some wear to spine ends and corners. Light toning to text, foxing to a few laves, internally clean. * Only edition. An account of one of the sensational trials of the early 1850s. Wikoff, or as he called himself, Chevalier Wikoff, was an American impresario, occasional European correspondent for the New York Herald and, possibly, a spy for Lord Palmerston. He was engaged to Jane Catherine Gamble, an English woman. Gamble changed her mind shortly before the wedding and fled to Genoa. Wikoff tracked her down and apparently tricked her into coming along with him to his apartment. Shortly afterwards Gamble filed a complaint of kidnapping that landed Wikoff in an Italian jail for 15 months. He was found guilty in an Italian court and forced to return her letters and "extorted promise of marriage." Ever enterprising, Wikoff responded to the negative publicity with a memoir entitled My Courtship and Its Consequences (1855), which became a best-seller. Copies of The Trial of Wikoff are scarce.

STOWE, HARRIET BEECHER
Boston: Jewett, 1852. FIRST EDITION, FIRST PRINTING. These books are of such paramount historical importance that it is difficult to evaluate them as literature (Merle Johnson). Three thousand copies were sold on the day of publication, and before its first anniversary, over 300,000 copies were sold in America More than twenty London editions appeared in 1852, so the English audience must have been as large as the American. No other American novel has been translated into so many foreign languages (Grolier/American). It is no wonder that this extraordinary book evoked visceral reactions. In the South Stowe was vilified. The Southern Literary Messenger labeled the book, criminal prostitution of the high functions of imagination. Among the abolitionists she was a hero, and her fame knew no bounds. Stowe visited Lincoln at the White House in 1862, and the President is said to have exclaimed, So this is the little lady who made this big war. There is no doubt that Uncle Tom s Cabin is one of the most influential novels ever published. It is a great human document that stripped away the protective atmosphere from the sacred institution [slavery], and laid bare its elementary injustice (Parrington, The Romantic Revolution in America). Provenance: the noted collection of Frederick W. Skiff, with his bookplate. Printing and the Mind of Man 332. Grolier 100 English Books 91. Grolier 100 American Books 61. BAL 19343. Two volumes.

E.S. Dallas
1852. Smith and Elder. First edition. As far as I can see, there isn't another first edition copy of this book available to buy on the internet. There are plenty of 20th and 21st century reprints. This copy is in its original binding. The cover has a closed 3cm tear running downwards from top of spine - see photos. The endpapers are sunned and the first has the author's name written in pencil and in full: '[Eneas Sweetland] Dallas'. There are pencil mark ups on the title page and preceding page - see photo. And there are few more mark ups on the text pages (five at a quick rough count). The book's 294 pages are tightly bound and otherwise extremely clean with no foxing, no tears and no folds. There is a 5cm tear where the endpaper has come away from the inside back page - see photo. All the pages have gold/gilt edges. Wikipedia mentions this book in its biography of Dallas: "His first publication in which he proved his mastery of this line of investigation was entitled Poetics, an Essay on Poetry, a work which he produced in 1852, while he resided in London." A very nice copy of this extremely rare first edition. [Attributes: First Edition]

Blackwell, Dr. Elizabeth
New York: George Putnam, 1852. First edition. Near Fine. Original publisher's cloth binding, stamped in blind with gilt to spine. All edges stained red. Brown endpapers. Some rubbing to extremities and spotting to rear board, but in all an exceptionally neat and square copy. Internally bright and clean, unmarked and without the foxing typical of imprints of this period. A rarity at institutions and on the market, this title by the first female M.D. in North America has only sold at auction three times in over thirty years. Born to a progressive family that believed in abolition, and in the equal education of sons and daughters, Elizabeth Blackwell began her career as the head of a girls' school while she worked toward her ambition of becoming a doctor. "Finding a way of realizing this ambition however would not be easy...in 1847, after years of private study and numerous rejections from medical schools, her application to the small, low-status medical school at Geneva in upstate New York was put the students by faculty, who were confident that the vote would result in a resounding rejection. The mischievous students, however, voted unanimously to admit her and then found themselves victim of their own practical joke when, in January 1849, Blackwell graduated MD above all 150 male students, an event that received widespread press in the United States and Great Britain" (ODNB). From 1849-1851 she worked at La Maternite in Paris, gaining clinical practice and expanding her knowledge of women's biology and medical care, before returning to New York "where she began to focu … [Click Below for Full Description]

Jewett & Company. You get both VOLUME 1 & 2 making it a COMPLETE SET! for just one bid! YOU'LL LOVE THIS SET OF BOOKS!!! It is dominated by a single theme: the evil and immorality of slavery. Stowe emphasizes the horrors of slavery on almost every page of the novel while also asserting that Christian love can overcome something as destructive as the enslavement of fellow human beings. Upon publication, Uncle Tom's Cabin ignited a firestorm of protest from defenders of slavery (who created a number of books in response to the novel) while the book elicited praise from abolitionists. Southern reactions ranged from forcing a bookseller in Mobile, Alabama to leave town for selling the novel to sending threatening letters to Stowe herself (including a package containing a slave's severed ear). The novel had a profound effect on attitudes toward African Americans and slavery in the United States, so much so in the latter case that the novel intensified the sectional conflict leading to the American Civil War. The book also helped create a number of stereotypes about Blacks, many of which endure to this day. These include the affect … [Click Below for Full Description]
